A Message from the Chairman of FilCom Oxford:

I wish to extend my sincerest congratulations to my fellow officers, to all the helpers and members of the Filipino Community of Oxfordshire for holding yet another very successful Independence Day Celebration last 19 June 2010. We enjoyed every minute of the event.

Many thanks to all our sponsors for their generosity and support and to all our guests for their presence and fellowship. Thank you to all participants and congratulations to the winners of our 'Pinoy Got Talent' Competition. Champion, Ricardo Morgan, second place, John Francis Benedicto and third place Carla Bergado.

I would like to invite you to come forward and share your God-given talents by helping us to run our community in the service our kababayans and friends in Oxfordshire. FilCom Oxford is in need of more volunteers to keep our community alive and responsive to needs of our members.

I look forward of hearing from you. If you would like to be part of our working committees, please email me at

Maraming Salamat po. Mabuhay tayong lahat.
